Horsing around with the Kelpies

Anyone driving along the M9 over the last year will have seen some of Scotland’s newest artwork – two 30 metre tall horse heads, otherwise known as the Kelpies. We decided to pay them a visit a few weekends ago and quickly learnt that they aren’t exactly horses, but instead mythical transforming water beasts who often take the form of horses. The whole area around the kelpies has been developed and it was fantastic to see so many people enjoying them and having fun around the Helix park.


We paid to take the tour of the Kelpies, which I would certain recommend as you get to go inside of ‘head down’ horse (aka Duke) and learn about the fantastic engineering while appreciating the artwork.
